A Survey of Metaphysics

It is very easy to read and I had a clear understanding of Metaphysics! It has all the topics that I am interested in. I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in metaphysics. It covers the nature of metaphysics, particulars, universals, modality, causation, and tense, among other topics.

The book is thus devoted to general metaphysics, though Lowe briefly considers the bearing of some of the theories on topics in special metaphysics, in particular free will and the mind-body problem.

While the coverage is comprehensive, Lowe does not sacrifice detail. He explains theories and introduces technical terminology clearly, and evaluates arguments for and against the theories carefully.

While Lowe presents his own considered conclusions, he explains how one may disagree, and the book is not didactic. The book is also well-organised. The chapters are relatively self-contained, but Lowe explains how our conclusions on one subject may bear upon the discussion of another. The book is intended primarily for undergraduate philosophy students who are already familiar with the techniques of analysis and argument, and I think that it would serve as an excellent text for undergraduate philosophy courses.

Lowe is one of the finest and most original of contemporary metaphysicians, and his introduction is recommended highly.


A Survey of Metaphysics by E.J. Lowe

Readers may also be interested in Loux’s more advanced introduction, “Metaphysics: A Contemporary Introduction”, which has slightly different coverage and emphasis. Lowe is the one to read. The presentation is exemplary.

Lowe is a philosopher of the first order and here he shows that he can also distill the essence of his discipline for mass consumption. He does it without sacrificing anything that is substantial.

If you read just one book in metaphysics this one may be your best bet. See all 4 reviews. Amazon Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers.
